How much does a street cost?

Okay, I'm not usually much on posting infographics, but this one: The Grid: How much does a street cost?. Great breakdown of what an intersection and street furniture costs, although what I'd really like to see is an amortized cost plus maintenance breakdown.

comments in ascending chronological order (reverse):

Missing: Sewers. Water Supply, Electricity Infrastructure, Police monitoring, Camera's, etc.. and while some prices seem right, some items seem to be missing the "soft" (engineering/permits) and installation costs, and some seem high.

I think it's low by an order.

Yeah, in the "Overhead Streetcar Wire" it notes that the buried utilities are not shown.

I'd love footnotes on this, or an RS Means estimating handbook like reference for infrastructure... Which is probably one of their products, it just starts at $500 and goes up...
